How does Ladders answer uncommon questions for Apply4Me job applications?

While most job applications are straightforward, some do ask uncommon personal questions that the Apply4Me team cannot answer on your behalf. Some specific examples are:

  • What subjects are you reading, studying, or enjoying in your free time?
  • Why do you want to work for [Company Name]?
  • Why do you feel you are the best candidate for this position?

When this type of question appears, we provide a standard line in your application:

”I’m using Ladders Apply4Me to apply to the jobs I’m most interested in. As this is an automated system, please follow up with me directly for any additional questions at email address.” - and we include your specific email address.

There is a trade-off between your taking the time to fill these questions out manually, and having Ladders’ Apply4Me handling them automatically - some companies may prefer to have the answers, others may be more than satisfied with your resume.

Fortunately, you can decide on each job application whether you’d prefer to complete it manually or have Ladders Apply4Me complete it for you.
